News Image
Roland Professional A/V has unveiled a new, compact multi-format matrix switcher – the XS-1HD.

The XS-1HD provides multi-screen output destinations for confidence monitor, main and side screens and overflow rooms. It features four HDMI inputs with scalers and scaled outputs, as well as live production tools such as keying and picture-in-picture effects with full HD support.

The switcher accepts video signals from sources such as cameras, computers, and media players. It is suitable for corporate production, worship and rental applications, plus banquet venues, halls, theatres or e-learning studios that use multiple output destinations to displays, pixel accurate scaling for LED Walls and projectors.

Frame synchronization and scaling are provided on all inputs. The 4:4:4/10-bit processing accommodates resolutions up to WUXGA/1080p. In addition to matrix switching, a split mode allows up to three inset windows to be composited into a background video for picture-in-picture applications (PinP), while switcher mode enables transition between videos, or PinP or key-compositing, with multi-view preview for real-time operation.

Two-channels of line level audio input and output are provided through RCA jacks. Audio can be mixed internally with HDMI audio via the built-in mixer. Audio embedding and de-embedding is supported, with delay control for lip-sync adjustments.

For installed and live production applications, the XS-1HD supports HDCP video signals from Blu-ray or smartphone, RS-232 for controls from PC or touch panels, or EDID to auto-configure output resolutions in smart displays. Test pattern generation simplifies display and monitor configuration.
